In addition to an overwhelming level of support from overseas, Ulu said that each day there are at least two or three donations from businesses, churches, civil society groups and individuals here in Samoa.
“Government is not taking these donations and the help provided lightly”.
He estimated monetary and in-kind donations from the local community in Samoa to be around $300,000 tala to date.
“All these items and monetary help coming in are rationed by the Center to the hospital, especially the wards with the sick children.
“We receive a mixture of monetary support and funding and also basic supplies including food and clothing”.
